Digital Vision Showcases New Nucoda And Phoenix Release

Digital Vision will demonstrate the new version of its Nucoda range of grading and finishing solutions and Phoenix restoration and remastering software at IBC2012.
The company will also highlight Phoenix Video, its new restoration and enhancement toolset for video related content. The 2012.1 release of Nucoda and Phoenix, which is now shipping to customers around the world, provides users with a host of new features.
For content owners who have large video archives, the latest video restoration tools in the Phoenix toolset, including cross colour and line sync, present the most flexible and powerful single restoration product in the market. The Phoenix product range includes integrated film and video restoration and enhancement tools, along with additional workflow benefits such as 64-bit implementation, significantly improving speed and performance when restoring memory-intensive projects such as 4K.
Recent examples of customers who are using Phoenix with stunning results include the restoration by Deluxe 142 of Hitchcock 9, the Technicolor Film Foundation’s restoration of Méliès' classic film, Voyage dans la Lune , the 4K digital restoration of Les Misérables by L’Immagine Ritrovata and more recently the Hollywood-based facility Eque, who were tasked by Apple Corps Ltd. to restore Yellow Submarine, the 1968 animated musical fantasy film based on the music of The Beatles for Blu-ray and digital cinema release.
Answering the needs of content owners housing millions of hours of material stored in videotape archives, Digital Vision will showcase Phoenix Video. Solely targeted at the video restoration market, Phoenix Video provides broadcasters and archive owners with a highly cost-effective image restoration software solution that allows content stored on videotape to be fully restored ready for distribution across multiple platforms.
Phoenix Video is an end-to-end solution that includes Digital Vision’s leading image manipulation DVO software toolset for highly automated restoration and enhancement of video content stored on various tape formats, such as 1", U-Matic and Betacam SP, or later transferred to digital tape formats.
Digital Vision will also demonstrate the new version of its Nucoda colour grading platform with extended dailies toolsets and colour workflow capabilities.This includes RAW camera updates, LUT export and new DVO options as well as:
• Nucoda Look - Latest addition to the Digital Vision’s grading and finishing platform: new pre-grade assist station and deliverables platform with LUT export.
• ACES workflow - Full support for ACES (SMPTE 2065) throughout the Nucoda product line. This includes ACES IDT support for non-ACES images, and direct output from RAW Arri Alexa RAW R3D images into ACES Colour space. ACES RRT and support for various Nucoda ACES ODT's including direct support for the Dolby PRM4200 Monitor.
• Stereo 3D tools - New, automated "Auto Colour & Align tools" are now part of Nucoda's respected stereoscopic workflow. These tools enable users to automatically match 3D cameras, with advanced motion estimation technology providing morphing and colour matching capabilities.
• New deformable shape tracker - Advanced and unique shape tracking concept. Instead of tracking and then moving a shape, the new tracker actually deforms the shape to match perfectly the changes occurring to the object underneath.
